  • Huntingdon 40 - NEVER AGAIN

    Lucy Townley 3 years ago

    Since installation in 2002 I get it regularly serviced, I have had to replace:- 1 x Top Plate circa £450 because they have to de-install it first, 5 x pieces of glass for the door, 6 rear fire... []

    Stove expert replied: If the initial stove flue pipe had a door in it then the baffle plate would not need to be removed for sweeping purposes and may lengthen its life. Any debris should be able to be removed through the flue pipe door. Perhaps this could be added into the system and ideally should have formed part of the initial installation process.

  • My experience is not a good one

    Robert White 9 years ago

    I am afraid my experience of this stove is not a good one.After seven winter's use it now has a crack running right across the top plate and smaller cracks front to back. Also the glass is... []

    Stove expert replied: If you are operating a stove at too high a temperature damage will be caused to either cast iron or steel stoves, perhaps get a flue thermostat to insure that the operating temperature is within recommended limit. Vermiculite liners will require replacing and can also crack during use so again maintenance will be required on a regular basis.

  • Would not reccomend this one

    Peter Clay 5 years ago

    I have the multifuel version. The main problem is to run it slowly. I never use phurnacite or coal for fear of overheating. I even worry with small dry wood. The riddle mechanism always clogs... []

    Stove expert replied: The glass will not stay clean if you are closing down the air wash control. If the stove is always busy and will not shut down do have a flue draw test done to see if a damper or flue stabilizer is required.

  • Honest rating

    Bernard Walsh 6 years ago

    Top casting plate where the flue pipe exits the top of the stove of the Multi-fuel Huntingdon 40 is weak and poorly cast. I have replaced 2 tops and now require the part replaced again at 246 pounds sterling. Replacement parts are very expensive. The glass, 3 firebrick inserts and top will cost the price of a new stove in Ireland. Googled prices 882.52 or 1115.00 euros... []

    Stove expert replied: Spares are expensive compared to the original stove price if several are required as in normal circumstances replacement parts are not required often. Have you a stove thermometer as this may well help to insure that you are using the stove at the optimum temperature so that longevity of the product can be achieved?

    We don't like it. It was in the house we recently bought so it isn't our choice of woodburner. It's ugly for starters. As far as using the thing goes, the door handle is awkward and the screw... []

  • Best Stove on Market

    My experience of the Huntington 40 has been nothing but positive. We had it now for over 10 years and I can say that it is the best stove on the market. It heats a very large area in our house... []

    Stove expert replied: It may not be the stove that is the problem in the sitting room it might be the flue system!

  • Great stove

    M Allum 8 years ago

    We have had this stove with a back boiler for 3 years now and the only parts that need replacing is the back fire brick which has now been in 2 parts for the last year. Itís a shame that the glass is nearly always black which is due probably to us running at too little temperature at night and the boiler taking the heat away. The boiler makes lots of good hot water with plenty of heat leftover for the room. Sweeping is a pain! Mainly due to the stove pipe not having a rodding eye (installerís fault) getting a brush around the bottom bend is very difficult and I always end up with damaged hands. The stove is excellent to keep in at night, indeed we have been away for over 24 hours and there is still life in the fire. ... []

    Stove expert replied: Do please note that operating the stove on a low temperature for long periods is not only bad for the glass but for the flue system. Short periods of fast burn are recommended at least twice a day for 15 mins to clear any debris produced when stove closed down.

  • Would not buy another one

    Chris 8 years ago

    Have had one of these for 5 years and now having to renew some internal bricks for the second time they are not cheap! So running costs are high, I know your going to say I'm running it too... []

    Stove expert replied: Two sets of bricks in 5 years is not excessive when used as described. They are a consumable item! The bricks are there to protect the metal of the stove and most stoves do have them in.
